UN Guterres Covers Up UN Rapes In Darfur Now Crocodile Tears As Bans Press 757th Day

By Matthew Russell Lee, Video here, Vine here

UN GATE, July 29 -- Farhan Haq, the deputy spokesman of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, and Guterres' Global Communicator Melissa Fleming have joined their boss in personally covering up child rapes and sexual abuse by UN personnel, including recently a child rape by a UN "peacekeeper" from Paul Biya's Cameroon in DR Congo, and others in Darfur.

  Now on July 29 Haq for Guterres has issued this: "The Secretary-General is deeply concerned about the increasing violence in many parts of the Darfur region of Sudan, notably the attacks in West Darfur on 25 July and in North Darfur on 13 July, in which dozens of people were killed and more than 1,500 houses burned, leaving thousands displaced and in dire need of humanitarian assistance.        The Secretary-General commends the efforts by the Sudanese authorities, under the leadership of Prime Minister Abdala Hamdok, in responding to these incidents, and calls for an investigation to ensure accountability.  Deliberate attacks against civilians violate international human rights law and international humanitarian law. The Secretary-General reiterates the commitment of the United Nations to support the implementation of the national protection strategy developed recently by the Transitional Government.  The African Union-United Nations Hybrid Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) will continue to focus on its protection mandate, and humanitarian partners continue to provide emergency relief.      The Secretary-General urges all armed groups, particularly those that have not joined the ongoing peace talks in Juba, to resolve their grievances through a political process.  As Sudan continues its process of democratic transition, there is a clear imperative to end the conflict in Darfur with a definitive and inclusive peace agreement.      Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary-General   New York, 29 July 2020." Canned statements amid cover up of UN rapes, and censorship.

  Even while they and OIOS Ben Swanson purport to care - and even answer questions - on the UN's cover up for Burundian and Gabon rapes in CAR in 2017, they have adopted corrupt Guterres' solution going forward: cover up the cases in advance. Rough up and ban the Press which asks, leave inside only insiders who ask why they can't use the UN escalator instead of walking one or two flights of stairs, and refuse to answer written questions. Their UN is dying - and taking young victims with it.

 At 9 am on February 4 - two hours before Guterres' pathetically belated "beginning of the year" press conference, the UN data dumped more rape charges. Inner City Press put in this question to Dujarric and Melissa Fleming and Guterres and others. No answer, publishing the question for now: "On UN sexual exploitation and abuse - alleged - this is a request that you immediately provide the "if asked" information about the new sex abuse cases data dumped on Feb 4, two hours before SG Guterres' belated press conference, apparently involving UN rape in Darfur and CAR, sex abuse by Uganda "peacekeeper" in South Sudan and from "the Congo" and Benin in CAR, etc- and two new cases of sexual exploitation in CAR by Cameroonian UN "Police" that were put online after 5 pm on December 30 (a day when you refused to answer 7 questions including on previous UN rapes), and the (Dec 19) rape case by a UN Volunteer in DRC in June 2019 - what nationality? What's been done for the victim(s)? and the Dec 9 sex abuse cases in CAR by Gabon, DRC and Morocco UN "peacekeepers, and the Dec g  about the Office of the Special Envoy for the Sahel, and the two more November 26, 3 pm cases of sexual exploitation in CAR by Cameroon troops in September 2019 (!) and 2018, and those of November 21 from 2017 and 2016, released an hour before UNSG Guterres met Cameroon FM, without readout or access or even response to request for access, on top of the November 11 case of rape in Liberia, and by a Cameroon "military observer" in Mali, UNanswered with Inner City Press blocked from noon briefing and only 2 questions inside, the cases of sexual exploitation and rape cursorily data dumped on November 11 at 10:30 am including rapes in Liberia, sexual exploitation in Sept 2019 in CAR (all nationalities undisclosed - why?), by Cameroon in Mali and those on November 4 and on October 31 at 1:30 pm as well as previously requested without response about the child rape and sexual exploitation by UN "peacekeepers" from Cameroon and South Africa the UN cursorily disclosed on the afternoon of October 28 - about which Inner City Press did not this time immediately ask, given that each of you have refused for one week and counting to answer in any way with if-asked information about the child rape and sexual exploitation cases involving Indonesia, Mauritania and again Cameroon, in DRC and Central African Republic cursorily data dumped onto the UN website after 3 pm on October 21. Requesting again that you immediately provide the "granular" information that was promised at the noon briefing to correspondents who barely ask or publish about this topic. What is being done for the victims? Also, again, what is Guterres' answer, which you refused to provide after banned Inner City Press asked you and others in writing on the morning of August 19 that you "immediately provide all if-asked and additional information about the new allegation of SEA announced of child rape by a Cameroonian "peacekeeper" in DR Congo, and why this has been left so long UNanswered - and also why previously published charges are no longer in the data to which UN Peacekeeping Conduct and Discipline points, including what if being done for these victims and any steps taken to avoid this constant repetition of abuse despite the SG's ostensible commitments. Again, are new allegations being buried elsewhere on the data page? Inner City Press is asking in writing because banned from the noon briefings and any follow up questions, now for more than a year. On August 24 Inner City Press re-applied for admission to cover the UNGA high level week; on August 30 it was summarily rejected, with no or only Kafka-esque reasoning. This week, as before none of Inner City Press' written questions, including on Honduras and Cameroon, have been answered. This is a request that you immediately confirm receipt of these questions and requests. -Matthew Russell Lee, InnerCityPress.com" No answer yet - even on the day of his rare press conference, Guterres is covering up rapes. Watch this site.

Those asked, who again did not answer and therefor are complicit, are: Stephane Dujarric <dujarric@un.org>, Farhan Haq <haqf@un.org>, <ag@un.org>, <melissa.fleming@un.org>, Marcia Soares Pinto <soarespinto@un.org>, David Kaye <dkaye@law.uci.edu>, Amina Mohammed <amina.mohammed@un.org>, Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti <marialuiza.viotti@un.org>, <damodaran@un.org>, Hua Jiang <jiang1@un.org>, <tisovszky@un.org>, SGCentral <sgcentral@un.org>, <omaish@un.org>, Tal Mekel <mekel@un.org>, Keishamaza Rukikaire <rukikaire@un.org>, <seda.pumpyanskaya@un.org>, <corbeta@un.org>, Eri Kaneko <kaneko@un.org> Cc: funca <funca@funca.info>, <gilles.michaud@un.org>, <pozenel@un.org>, <peter.reid@un.org>, <zoe.paxton@un.org>  We'll have more on each of these. The banning from the UN of media which asks the UN about rapes by the UN is a crime, and these are criminals.

 A similar request was sent, without response yet but their knowledge confirmed as a matter of law, on more than 11 previous cases - enough to make out a criminal conspiracy pattern to among others: ag [at] un.org, dujarric [at] un.org, haqf [at] un.org,  David Kaye, amina.mohammed [at] un.org, marialuiza.viotti [at] un.org, jiang1 [at] un.org, melissa.fleming [at] un.org, gilles.michaud [at] un.org, pozenel [at] un.org, zoe.paxton [at] un.org, peter.reid [at] un.org - the communicator brought in from McKinsey with public money while Guterres said he had no money (this was prior to taking $50,000 in presumpively El Chapo's money from Honduras government of Juan Orlando Hernandez, UNanswered.)

 No answers, despite Dujarric's previous on camera commitment / lie about answering Inner City Press' questions. Video here.

 Worse, Dujarric repeated and expanding on the lies on September 19, video here, claiming that Inner City Press is in touch with UN Media Accreditation - while Melissa Fleming has not answered a single letter and has banned the active Press - 87,000 Twitter followers and counting, covering the courts and #6ix9ine and Halkbank and OneCoin and Doe v. ICE and the Honduras narco regime Guterres also covers up for - from entering to cover the UNGA week.

   Guterres' UN sent this out:

"From: malu malu [at] un.org
Date: Fri, Aug 30, 2019 at 4:23 PM
Subject: U.N. eAccreditation request for Matthew Lee Ref # M5413398 has been declined
To: Inner City Press:

Greetings Matthew Lee from Inner City Press,  Your media accreditation request, with reference no: M5413398, has been declined for the following reason: Media accreditation was withdrawn on 17 August 2018."

  This is Kafka-esque, and corrupt. We will have more, much more, on this.
